  • Ropes Course/Zip Line
  • Pottery & Wood Carving

All activities, lodging, accommodations and meals are provided free of charge throughout the four-day event, and participants are free to choose activities based on their own interests and energy levels throughout the weekend.  While we can also help with local transportation between program sites and to/from the Portland Jetport and Transportation Center (bus and train), all travel to/from Maine is the responsibility and at the expense of the participant.
